Wheeler student suspended for having knife

A Wheeler High School student has been suspended for 10 days and charged with a felony for carrying a weapon onto the campus.

According to an arrest warrant, Wilford Ray Chandler Jr. had a pocket knife with a 2.5-inch blade on Aug. 29, a violation of the school district's weapons policy.

Jay Dillon, a Cobb schools spokesman, said Chandler left the Wheeler campus about midday — a violation of the school's rules. When he came back onto the grounds, a school resource officer searched him and his car, which is standard operating procedure when a student leaves campus without permission.

The blade, described in the warrant as a "multipurpose-type pocket knife," was found in the center console of the car.

"He left campus when he wasn't supposed to, and he acknowledged that," Dillon said.

The district's zero tolerance policy dictates that a blade longer than 2 inches gets an automatic 10-day suspension and criminal charges. Smaller blades get a 5-day suspension and may result in criminal charges, Dillon said.

Last year, "dozens" of weapons were found in Cobb schools, he said.

Dillon noted that on Friday a Pebblebrook High School student stabbed another student on campus. That student, a juvenile whose name was not released, was suspended and charged with bringing a weapon to school, aggravated battery and aggravated assault.

The injured student, also a juvenile, was OK, Dillon said.

That's nonsense.
